SIRO was launched in 2015 with its shareholders ESB and Vodafone committing €450m to connect the first 51 towns.  The two shareholders have complementary skill sets. ESB was a pioneer in electrifying Ireland and have a knowledge of large scale engineering projects that is unparalleled. Vodafone is Ireland’s leading mobile telecoms operator, with over a million customers and world leading expertise in the transmission of data. These two companies enable SIRO to build a nationwide 100% fibre-to-the-building network the first of its kind in Ireland.
